Located near the city center, great place to eat seafood. Great wine list as well. Took a 3 course menu for 31 Euros, & quality was definately there.

Just opposite the market in the centre of La Rochelle. Ideal lunchtime rendezvous. Chose off the menu rather than the menu du jour itself - which we would try next visit as the price was very attractive. Cocotte de noix de st jacques - and turbot. We both tried the assiette gourmand for dessert but wouldn't repeat the experience. Would... More

Delicious food, nice ambience with colorful decorations and creative setting of furnitures and fittings in the restaurant. Should try their set menu.

Arrive early, we sat down at opening when it was literally empty and within no more than five minutes people had started queuing. I can see why. We all stuck to the seafood dishes and weren’t disappointed. All were exceptional. The only issue being that with the restaurant being so busy that service was at times pretty slow.

Popular restaurant just by the old market hall. Although it is not exclusively a fish restaurant, most of the dishes are fish. I had the mi-cuit de saumon to star, followed by the whole bar. Both as fresh as they come and delicious. Neil had the foie gras followed by the cocotte de Saint Jaques. Scallops to die for, superbly... More

Their veal kidneys continue to be superb ! A good menu and very pleasant service are the hallmarks of this restaurant- you can eat inside or outside. Every day there are new specials on the blackboard. Highly recommended.

This is a very friendly restaurant offering well-priced menus with a good range of dishes. It is in a street in the central part of town, just a short walk from the port area, and is a better bet than some of the more touristy places near the port. All the dishes were of high quality, with a certain originality... More

Absolutely delicious - friendly staff - even though our French was poor - best turbot we've ever had and perfectly cooked beef - all for a great price!

This restaurant was recommended to me by someone who lives in La Rochelle. They mainly specialise in fish but I chose the fillet steak and it was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was efficient without being too servile and the ambiance was in keeping with the area. Would definitely recommend.
